ooomph under the hood.  I want something with at least 500+ hp, preferrably 550+.  My cayman has
350(granted in a very small/light car, but still)....

When I hear some one talking about wanting a car with these big souped up engines, I always have the
same question.  Where do you drive them?  Do you own a race track?  Do you own a 10,000 acre ranch
some where?  Or are you one of those guys who go racing around trying to do twice the legal
speed limit?  Risking criminal charges and causing a serious or fatal accident?

In my area the highest speed limit is 65 mph.  Why would I want a car that can go 140 mph?
